Download Software - Cisco Systems
Been able to get some IOS's for at least 2 years.
SYNACK (19th September 2012)
Router software is still restricted download though.
A badly damaged cable can do some meaty damage, as can a damaged switch - do you have a big estate or can you quickly isolate a bad device/cable?
RE: Cisco upgrades: if you register the product online against your Cisco account, you should be eligible for upgrades? I know I was for ASA 5510s.
Best of luck.
2960 and 2960-S Series
Edit: This was Cisco's response to HP's "lifetime warranty" on ProCurve switches. Limited Lifetime Warranty and free software. The LLW just means you have to be the original owner, and it doesn't cover the power supply past 5 years. Otherwise, they'll RMA/cross-ship a new unit *without* any support contract with 5 business day coverage.Q. Can I obtain a Cisco IOS Software updates for the Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series at no additional cost?
A. Yes. Cisco offers ongoing Cisco IOS Software updates for certain fixed-configuration and stackable Cisco Catalyst switches at no additional cost. For the life of the product, updates within the Cisco IOS Software package purchased (LAN Lite and LAN Base) will be made available.
Q. How do I get an update for the Cisco IOS Software for the Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series at no additional cost?
A. Visit Cisco Systems, Inc, click "Downloads," and select "Switch Software." Downloading software requires a Cisco.com username and password. If you do not have a Cisco.com username, you can obtain one by clicking "Register" at the top of any page on Cisco.com.
It's certainly not the way a lot of people are used to Cisco software, but it's been around for a couple of years. I know I first heard of it at Cisco Live (US) in 2010.
Obviously this doesn't cover your Cat6K's or Nexus gear but access-layer hardware is covered.
